Synthesizing a global perspective
into concentrated insights.

We have developed integrated, iterative, and global research capabilities to generate ideas, underwrite investments, and construct portfolios in a way that takes a comprehensive outlook of our fundamental research into account.

Taking Everything
Into Account

Our approach emphasizes diligence, expertise, experience, and collaboration. It highlights active adaptability. It benefits from boots on the ground: touring facilities, meeting a company’s owners, employees, customers, and suppliers. It demands dialogue to foster clarity and conviction.

In an environment where others have localized, specialized, or narrowed their apertures, we take a holistic, integrated outlook to produce differentiated insights and contrarian perspectives.

Pattern Recognition

Know what to look for, where to look, and when.

We look to invest behind change that can catalyze, accelerate, or unlock value. Collaboration and shared institutional knowledge drive and inform pattern recognition across sectors and geographies to support the continuous re-underwriting of our beliefs and ongoing discovery of new opportunities.

The Dynamics of Cycles
We look for attractive entry points when cycles create opportunities where institutional knowledge, domain expertise, and deep experience inform our recognition of inflection points as or before they occur.
On average, we typically hold a single long position for 2-3 years, though we have followed certain companies for close to our entire existence. We believe the ability to match our investment timeline to our investors’ duration is a continued source of alpha.
Innovation comes in many forms: technology, product, distribution, business model, management approach or ability, and so on. These catalysts are moments to rethink our expectations and evaluate new facts that may alter our prior conclusions.

360-Degree Vision

Because silos create blind spots, our research process is integrated across verticals and industries, enabling us to assemble a comprehensive view of and around every opportunity.

We examine companies, analyzing their reputation, management, key performance metrics, unit economics, current conditions, and future prospects. We leverage our strong global network for insights into the ecosystems around companies. We synthesize industry and regional insights, trends, opportunities, and threats to enhance pattern recognition for potential analogous dynamics in other areas. All this informs a holistic, micro-to-macro view, enabling our collaborative process of analysis, debate, and idea generation.

Crucially, this process is iterative, keeping our intel current and creating a steady stream of learnings and insights, allowing us to optimize our strategies over time.

Our Investment Philosophy

Our collaborative investment team contributes to our institutional knowledge to evaluate and debate opportunities, trends, and economic conditions across public and private markets.

Qualitative and quantitative, macro and micro, long and short, public and private—our research method integrates numerous factors into a positive feedback loop of learnings, innovations, and optimization.
Ongoing research works to fuel continuous pursuit of compelling risk-reward opportunities worldwide that meet our rigorous investment criteria.
We perform deep fundamental work to evaluate a company’s management caliber, growth potential, unit economics, margin profile, competitive dynamics, and franchise value.
Through a concentrated portfolio of best ideas informed by our overall risk framework, we focus on balanced exposure to potential return drivers.
